Dry Eye Evaluation

Depending on severity, evaluations may be scheduled anywhere from every 1 month to every year.

  • Biomicroscopy lets your doctor evaluate for signs or scarring from mild to severe dryness
  • Special drops and dyes let your doctor measure how fast your tears evaporate as well as their overall quality
  • Your oil ducts are evaluated for atrophy or poor oil production
  • Special procedures can be ordered, like placing punctal plugs into the tear ducts to increase your tear level
  • Reports can be sent to your medical doctor to coordinate care if your dryness is related to an auto-immune condition
